Crafted for the ones that are free to enjoy their Porter all year round. This rich, Imperial Porter combines the perfect blend of LaTerza espresso, vanilla and innovation into a big, rich, chocolate, espresso infused brownie of a beer that is as innovative as its namesake. Rivertown was asked to craft a beer for a community festival in 2011 which celebrated the 145th Birthday of the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge linking Cincinnati, OH and Covington, KY. This Imperial Porter is inventive, unique, well balanced, strong, and has been created to be as timeless and remarkable as the Roebling Bridge, the man who dreamed big and the community that brought that dream to life.

rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2016
Style et résumé: Imperial porter mince.
Comment: EBF 2016.
Portrait: Un liquide brun. Un nez de chocolat, café, de vanille et grain rôtis. Une bouche similaire avec des saveurs de chocolat et fruits rouges. Une texture plutôt aqueuse gâche la sauce.
Note: 6+/10

Bottle (from FL). Dark brown color, small off-white head. Aroma has artifical chocolate, cardboardish malts, espresso. Light-bodied. Sweet chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, harsh. Njet.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 23, 2016
Bottled. Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is espresso, wood and some mild dusty and a bit earthy notes. Flavour is espresso, vanilla, some toffee and mild liquorice. Lovely for the sweet tooth.

Poured a dark brown with virtually no head. Smells of coffee and vanilla which I guess shouldn’t be surprising, hence it being described as a "vanilla espresso" porter. Super thick body and tastes sweet and roasty.

jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 14, 2016
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate and light roasted malts, vanilla, coffee, some sweet malts, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, a little sweet for my taste.

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Arômes de café, de chocolat en sirop et de vanille avec malts rôtis. Intéressant. Les saveurs sont entre la douceur et l’amertume. Enfin de bouche, des fruits foncés se signalent. Dommage que ce soit mince en bouche. Correct.

Bebum (993) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Dark copper, clear, tight lace. Medium body, rather flat mouthfeel, low heat and carbonation, intense roast flavors, long palate. Bitter, sweetish. Dark roast coffee, lactose. Unimpressive but not unpleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Pours an opaque dark brown almost black color with khaki colored head. Vanilla, espresso roast coffee, and dark chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, thin for an imperial porter. Finishes with vanilla sweetness and espresso coffee.

Niall73 (2432) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
Tap at Engine 15, Jacksonville. Pours a Coca Cola colour with an off white head. Light dark choc, coffee aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. A touch thin. Coffee, milk choc, light vanilla, light raisin... OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sawbuck (735) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2015
heavy aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and some spices. Ebony in color, super thin white head. Sweet up front....very sweet. Rich chocolate, some notes of vanilla, and some cream soda. Bitterness is dry and coffee-like. Watery mouth feel, not much carbonation. Average.
